Temperatures are expected to drop, Wednesday, mainly along the Mediterrean coast and at lower elevations inland, but it will still be warmer than usual, with a rise in temperature on Thursday bringing the Sharav conditions back to the inland lowlands. On Friday the Sharav will spread to most areas with gusty winds and a chance of haze.
